Her label 1205’s collection was characterised by her interest in uniforms and sharp androgynous tailoring, with long line silhouettes and heavily worked over fabrics in a neutral colour palette of khaki, grey, white and marine.
Jonathan Anderson - J.W.Anderson
Established in 2008, Jonathan Anderson’s label is widely considered to be one of the most innovative singular brands in British fashion. With each subsequent season J.W.Anderson refines its aesthetic, characterised by lightness and sense of play. For this season the collection was a departure in references with an uncharacteristic focus on a single time period - the early 1980’s. The iridescent show reveled in the visual pomp and over the top styling of the period all set to a soundtrack by iconic 1980’s act The Human League.
